This month’s TRK. is dedicated to the relationship between sound and video, widely explored over the past years by artists with various different backgrounds and aesthetic horizons (video artists, sound artists, composers, performers).

The Factory, Giovanni Magaglio Log Out (audiovisual work) [Production: Tempo Reale]
Mario Gabola (IT)

TRK. SOUND CLUB’s second event is composed of two sets presenting the fusion of video, electronic music, and unexplored sound sources. The first set will present Log Out, an audiovisual work originating from the collaboration between composer Giovanni Magaglio and the The Factory collective, blending innovative styles and technologies ranging from video art to plastic arts, from sound elaboration to industrial technology. The second set hosts Mario Gabola, a ground-breaking musician from the Neapolitan experimental scene: after a debut in rock and post-punk, Gabola devoted himself to free improvisation, developing refined extended techniques on saxophone; his research on new sounds also led him towards the construction of lo-fi electronic sound sources.

With the support by MiBAC  and SIAE, nell’ambito dell’iniziativa “S’illumina – Copia privata per i giovani, per la cultura”
Live streaming on Usmaradio

First showing: 21:00 – Log Out (1st performance) + Mario Gabola
Second showing: 21.30 – Mario Gabola + Log Out (2nd performance)

The evening’s international guest will be d’incise (pseudonym of Laurent Peter), who undertakes a radical sound research through the creation of self-built new sound sources and a reductionist approach to materials. d’incise will present Le désir, a solo for foldable metal bars played with limited and controlled gestures.

SILENCE•NO•SILENCE

52-Hearts Whale -TRKitalia | Jacopo Mittino
Back To Silence
Tempo Reale Electroacoustic Ensemble: Agnese Banti, Tazio Borgognoni, Francesco Giomi, Leonardo Rubboli, Stefano Rapicavoli
Concept: Francesco Giomi
Production: Tempo Reale

The first event of the year explores the relationship between sound and silence: an almost provocative total noise performance (/Confini/, curated by 52-Hearts Whale, a pseudonym of sound designer and performer Jacopo Mittino), is presented alongside Back to Silence, a sonic action centred on the search for silence (conceived by composer Francesco Giomi), with the participation of the Tempo Reale Electroacoustic Ensemble featuring musicians Agnese Banti, Tazio Borgognoni, Francesco Giomi, Stefano Rapicavoli and Leonardo Rubboli. Absolute noise is contrasted with the absence of sound, with the objective of exploring, even just as a disciplinary exercise, the concepts of awaiting and of attention for the beauty of listening.

In collaboration with Bright Festival
